PCB design help for a project

Hello everyone! I am about to make my own fitness device, I don't wish to reveal much, but I need to be able to measure the movement and position of the user, the user needs to be able to connect to the device and receive the information about his workout on their phone. And should be able to trace out their workout path. The PCB needs to be at least 6.5-7.5cm (2.56in-2.95) x 2.5-3.5cm (0.98in-1.38in).

I made my own schematic which I have attached below, I have already done the circuit for the Accelerometer and Gyroscope. The PCB I have made is just a prototype hence I have added jumpers to test it out if everything is ok, but feel free to suggest something else, also for the whole circuit itself.



I am not very experienced with PCB designing, I would like some help from you, my requirements for this PCB would be-
1) GPS
2) Accelerometer and Gyroscope
3) a Li-Ion battery charging circuit
4)Bluetooth

Since I would be mass producing this, I also need help in making it as easily manufacturable as possible.

Thank you very much.

What's your budget? How much are you willing to pay for the help?

I actually would want some guidance as to wether I am doing it right, in the right way, that is why I have made a schematic but just wanted help and posted it here

If you're just prototyping then the 4 things you want on the board are probably better being sourced as modules from banggood or ebay. For a prototype, EasyEDA have the processor you state in the pdf and will assemble the boards for you. You will need to add any through hole components.

Why is there a minimum size for thew PCB? It's normally a maximum size.

Thank you, my bad I meant maximum size. What should I type in the search bar for these sites to get the right part I am finding? Because when I search for gps modules it is only showing me the antenna, not the entire thing- (https://www.banggood.in/Beitian-Dua...html?cur_warehouse=CN&ID=6300460&rmmds=search)

Is this the part for example that I need or are there more to a gps module/system?

Try finding the components you need on Ebay as modules and design a board with your processor of choice using EasyEDA, you maybe happily surprised at the cost of 10 boards that have the processor already in place. If you need help then just ask here.

Sure, I am only confused about the GPS module, because I can only see antennas. Can you suggest me some boards?
